This was an oops photo that got me to wondering how many batteries I've gone through during this "365 Photoblog Year". I probably don't want to know.

Today I spent a couple of hours playing some old favorites. Do you remember "One Tin Soldier"? I can not play that song without crying. Here's why:
"....So the people of the valley sent a message up the hill
asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they'd kill.
Came an answer from the kingdom; 'With our brothers we will share
all the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there.'

Now the valley cried with anger; mount your horses, draw your sword
and they killed the mountain people, so they won their just reward.
Now they stood beside the treasure on the mountain, dark and red,
turned the stone and looked beneath it,
'Peace on earth' was all it said."

"Sometimes we come to life's crossroads and
View what we think is the end,
But God has a much wider vision and
He knows it's only a bend --

The road will go on and get smoother, and
After we've stopped for a rest,
The path that lies hidden beyond us is
Often the part that is best.

So rest and relax and grow stronger
Let go and let God share your load,
And have faith in a brighter tomorrow
You've just come to a bend in the road."

One cord of wood, neatly stacked...makes me happy just looking at it. This "stacking" was a family effort and it will reward us with many a cozy fire this winter!

Fly Away

One sturdy airplane
plus one talented pilot...
equals one beautiful sunset at 7,000 feet!

Weekend Whats Up?

Incredible Performances; high notes that made me jump and low notes that made me shiver!
Cloodle, Scultorades, Sensosketch, Cameo, Humdinger...some of the activities that Christy, John and I undertook while playing Cranium!
Handyman Husband...he can fix anything he sets his mind to...
My shadow self raking leaves in the backyard.
Papa and Christy setting a trap down in the creekbed. I wonder what they will catch?


"Hippy" Christy on the left and "Pirate" Nathan on the right..."Ninja" friends Mary, Rachel and Hannah, in between. They raked in 6.5 pounds of candy Halloween night!
